  25. Tried this today, but the besan dough turned out to be too dense. I thought it would be porous and soft to eat, the gravy tasted good. Is that how the dough is supposed to be?

  26. @Karen..the dough you make should be very sticky,if the dough you make is hard.this wont work....

  28. Hello aarthi your gatte ki subzi is mouth tempting but I want to know when I add curd after gatte the curd and water will be separate while boling so what to do?

  29. @Geetika KhanujaBut it will get thick as you cook them down. and it will thicken because of the gram flour.
